Flutter and Shine Fabric

I had the awesome opportunity to work with a new fabric line from Riley Blake Fabrics.

The line of fabric is called "Flutter and Shine" and is designed by Melanie Colette.  The prints are super cute with lots of butterflies and strawberries.  The prints are perfect for fussy cutting.  
If you are unfamiliar with fussy cutting, click [HERE] for a video tutorial.

The fabrics are so adorable I couldn't make just one project, but decided to make three!

My FREE Baby Patchwork Pouch pattern was the perfect project for this fabric line.  There are so many cute fussy cutting opportunities.  You can find the fun zipper pull at Sunny Day Fabric.
Link to the FREE "Baby Patchwork Pouch" pattern is [HERE]

Since we have a butterfly theme going on,  I just had to make my Butterfly Paper Piecing Pattern and use it as the center panel on my Macaroon Pouch.  Both patterns can be found in my Etsy shop.           (I reduced the butterfly pattern to 80% of the original to fit on the pouch)

The background dot, yellow dot, and woven gingham fabric I used for the pouch are from Riley Blake Fabrics as well. 
The Swiss Dot can be found [HERE] (this a go to fabric for backgrounds on many of my projects) and the 1/4" Red Woven gingham can be found [HERE]

Last but not least, I made these cute strawberry pincushions!  The pattern can be found at Down Grapevine Lane.  I filled them with ground walnut shells which you can find online. The lavender scented walnut shell filling 
for my strawberries was found on Amazon.com.

National Parks Fabric from Riley Blake

Happy Tuesday!
I had the awesome opportunity to use Riley Blakes's National Parks fabric by Anderson Design Group to make some fun summer projects.

The fabrics are gorgeous and the artwork is lovely with a vintage look.

I used the National Parks pillow panels to make two 20" pillows.  They were a quick and easy make!

The border is National Parks Green Signs which I also used for the back of the pillow.
The pillow edge has piping which I purchased at my local quilt shop.  One package is just the perfect amount for one pillow.

I also made some fun coasters with the National Parks posters fabric and they are borders with the National Parks Cream Signs fabric. 
 Each of these little posters is 3" x 4",  so they are the perfect size for these coasters.
They are finished with a narrow bias binding which I also purchased at my local fabric store.
